Mainstream media in Hawaii, via the Star Advertiser, has reported that between 500 and 800 squid and lantern fish were found dead or close to dead in the Nawiliwili Harbor area of Hawaii on Monday, January 27, prompting both state and federal officials to investigate the cause of their die off. What they won’t come right out and tell you is that this is just one of the many species possibly dying from the radioactive fallout of Fukushima. The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) says that lantern fish are typically found in the very deep ocean, and they ‘aren’t sure’ why they are showing up dead on Hawaii’s shores.
The public is being asked to look for more dying lantern fish and squid on nearby beaches and to report it to the Eyes of the Reef Network.
Scientists have already linked seal deaths in Alaska with Fukushima radiation – they suffered skim lesions, hair loss, and lethargy, and many just didn’t make it at all. Bald eagles, sea stars, small fish and even plankton are showing up dead and dying too.
